2 Answers

Crank sensor, I had the same problem

3,565

is it getting enough spark? just because it will turn over doesn't necessarily mean the battery is actually strong enough to start it. could also be the computer--that's what happened when my computer started messing up intermittently in my 95 Dakota.
